SMARTS Conversations: Getting to Know the MetaCOG Surveys and Toolkit

February 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free for SMARTS Users

Please note: This session is for current SMARTS users only.

What is the relationship between motivation, effort, and executive function strategy use? How can we measure these important components of successful learning? And how can we use that knowledge to inform instruction, build relationships with our students, and help them become strategic and self-aware learners?

The MetaCOG Surveys & Toolkit (formerly MetaCOG Online) is a dynamic, interactive executive function survey tool that features two surveys: the STRATUS (Strategy Use Survey) and the ME (Motivation and Effort Survey). The STRATUS highlights students’ perceptions of their use of planning, organizing, memorizing, shifting, and self-checking strategies. The ME helps teachers understand what motivates their students and helps them persevere, and it also allows students to share how much effort they put into various subjects and academic tasks. This unique online survey system enables students to understand and reflect on their personalized EF and motivation/effort profiles and also provides teachers with a class summary and action plan framework based on their students’ needs.

Whether you’ve used the MetaCOG Surveys & Toolkit before, have access to it and haven’t started, or are just interested in learning more, we invite you to attend this SMARTS conversation. Join Michael Greschler, M.Ed., Caitlin Vanderberg, M.Ed., and other SMARTS educators to dive into the MetaCOG Surveys & Toolkit and be the first to learn about our launch of the Motivation and Effort Survey and new navigation/accessibility features for both surveys.

Please note: the MetaCOG Surveys & Toolkit feature requires an add-on to the secondary license; however, all current secondary users are welcome to join.
